Many thanks to all who supported our

March Fundraising Campaign

With your help we surpassed our goal & raised


for the program!

Our Mission

‘EYLE’s adult literacy, numeracy and computer skills program transforms lives and enhances self-worth by empowering individuals to reach their full potential.’

We help adults improve their reading, writing and basic math.  We also offer computer-based training to our literacy students.  Operating as a charity in East Toronto since 1987, we have helped over a thousand adults build better lives.

Our clients meet weekly in one-to-one sessions with trained, volunteer tutors.  They follow an individualized training plan to meet their literacy goals.

Did you know?

42% of Canadian adults between 16-65 years have low literacy skills.  They can not read or write well enough to:

  • apply for jobs
  • read a newspaper
  • write a letter
  • fill out forms
  • do banking

Our services are free to clients because of the generous support of our funders and private donors.

This Employment Ontario program is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario and through the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement.
